Bash Bash Food Bar, Vodice

I am not the biggest fan of Vodice and their vision of “tourism”. It used to be a great place some 25 – 30 years back but it is just a big mess now and I avoid it as much as I can. I also tell all my clients to stay away as there is…

Pece in Vinjerac – revisitied

I was there only once, back in the winter of 2009. Nothing has changed: it is still one of the finest seafood places one can visit on the Adriatic coast! It is located in Vinjerac, one of the most picturesque little towns in the country but also quite off the beaten path as this is…

Saints Hills Vinaria

Peljesac peninsula is one of those regions that is considered to be  one of the “wine countries” of Croatia just like it is Istria or Plješivica… Famous for it’s rich bodied plavac from Dingač and Postup appellations, this region is simply a must for any serious wine lover. In 1961 Dingač became Croatia’s first recognized appellation with “Protected…

Bepa – Seafood fast food

One of my favorite places in Split, that opened this summer, is Bepa. It is basically a seafood fast food. It is based on local seafood tradition but one can also get a quality pršut  sandwich or, like at this very moment, to have an interesting pumpkin dish or two. Unusual but quite interesting and quite…

Restaurants in Split – eating out in Split

So this was an exciting summer for all of us who like eating out from time to time. There are many newly opened restaurants in Split following the booming of tourism and increase of number of travelers who choose Split as their destination.Most of the restaurants are trying to have something other than boring, classic…

Restaurant Apolon, Stari Grad, Hvar Island

Recently, we have been invited to inspect Hotel Apolon in Stari Grad on Hvar Island. It was a pleasant surprise over a year ago when I first visited but, what intrigued me even more, was the restaurant that everyone was raving about. So, we used the opportunity to visit and taste some of their favorites. There…

Temple of Cheese

Croatia has a nice variety of cheeses. Nowhere near as France or Italy but the ones we have are of superb quality. No matter if it is award winning Gligora sheep’s milk cheese or “sir iz mišine”, we have some great cheeses. But, it is not easy to find them. There are supermarkets and some…

Villa Ruza Restaurant – Kolocep Island, Dubrovnik

Villa Ruža has been on the list of top Dubrovnik area restaurants for some time now. It is located on the island of Koločep and not easy to get to unless you are chartering a boat or having a private motor boat transfer to the island. But, it is a stunning place worth visiting and…

Stari Fijaker 900 Restaurant – Zagreb

Zagreb has many great restaurants and it is easy to find nice place with great food. Many are modern and quite inovative but most still play it safe with either “Italian” menus or classic Croatian restaurant menus offering same octopus salad, pršut and cheese, few pasta dishes, few variations of steaks… Boring. But, in Zagreb, one can…
